DesignTracker| Master architect Frank Gehry’s home for Miami’s New World Symphony opens today to critical reviews. Many say the symphonic masterpiece is Gehry’s best work in years. The purpose of New World Symphony, founded by Michael Tilson Thomas and Ted Arison in 1987, is to combat the notion that classical music is stuffy and irrelevant to modern young people.
Miami’s Riptide 2.0 pulls out the greatest accolades about Frank Gehry’s masterpiece.
From the NY Times’ Nicolai Ouroussoff:
The story reflects Mr. Gehry’s belief that music, like other creative endeavors, should be more than an aesthetic matter. As a shared experience, one that reaches each of us at our emotional core, it helps unite us into a civilized community. This is probably why it’s the first Gehry building I have fallen in love with in years — not because it is perfect but because of the values it embodies.
